Another Letter from Dr. Josephus Belle

Using their vast library and considerable connections, our partners in The Royal Society of Enquiry have tracked down a cache of ancient relics. Roman pagans fleeing persecution from early Christians built a secret temple to house their treasures in Constantinople. Some exciting documents revealing the location of this valuable horde of artifacts have been translated by Chancellor Neville Welke himself. This mission is of the utmost importance to both The Miskatonic Society and The ROSE.

You will board a steamer to Paris, meet up with the ROSE expedition team and travel together on The Orient Express to Istanbul. There, under the streets of the most eclectic city in the world, you will find items of wealth, power and knowledge that have no equal on this earth!

A Letter from Dr. Josephus Belle

Our fledgling society has made great strides in discovering fantastical mysteries so far. I have chosen you, among our peers, to partake in a joint venture with The Royal Society of Enquiry. The Royal Society of Enquiry, also known as The ROSE, is a Fellowship of the world’s most eminent archeologists, anthropologists, astronomers, historians, scientists and other intellectuals. They are the oldest scientific academies in existence.

This British organization has reached out to us to collaborate in a very exciting opportunity. A newly discovered Assyrian temple complex offers many potentially powerful artifacts for study. By partnering with The ROSE on this expedition, we will gain access to their contacts and resources in the Arabian world. This is The Miskatonic Society’s chance to impress those old, cantankerous Brits. I have faith in each of you to to make this long journey and return safely with historical mysteries for us to delve into.

-Proud of Each of You
Dr. Josephus Belle
